|A case of recurrent pericardial constriction presenting with severe pulmonary hypertension. (Volume 3) - Brunner, Nathan W.|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 3.AbstractChronic constrictive pericarditis (CP) is a relatively rare condition in which the pericardium becomes fibrotic and noncompliant, eventually resulting in heart failure due to impaired ventricular filling. The only curative treatment is pericardiectomy. Classically, CP does not usually cause severe pulmonary hypertension. When attempting to differentiate CP from restrictive cardiomyopathy, the presence of severely elevated pulmonary art...
|Functional ion channels in human pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells: Voltage-dependent cation channels. (Volume 1) - Firth, Amy L.|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 1.AbstractThe activity of voltage-gated ion channels is critical for the maintenance of cellular membrane potential and generation of action potentials. In turn, membrane potential regulates cellular ion homeostasis, triggering the opening and closing of ion channels in the plasma membrane and, thus, enabling ion transport across the membrane. Such transmembrane ion fluxes are important for excitation–contraction coupling in pulmonary artery s...

|Provider recognition and response to echocardiographic findings indicating pulmonary hypertension in the Veterans affairs medical center population. (Volume 3) - Kingrey, John F.|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 3.AbstractPH occurs alone or in association with many disorders. Many patients with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) findings suggesting PH never receive additional evaluation. Patient characteristics and echocardiographic data associated with increased recognition of PH have not been fully evaluated. We evaluated TTE reports at the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs Medical Center from 2005 to 2006 retrospectively for findings highly indicative of...
|Circulating angiogenic modulatory factors predict survival and functional class in pulmonary arterial hypertension. (Volume 3) - Malhotra, Rajeev|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 3.AbstractThe diagnosis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is frequently delayed. We hypothesized that circulating angiogenic modulatory protein levels might correspond with vascular remodeling activity and serve as sensitive biomarkers of PAH. Levels of soluble endoglin (sEng), soluble vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-1 (sVEGFR1), N-terminal brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), C-reactive protein (CRP), and other biomarkers w...

|Targeting the adventitial microenvironment in pulmonary hypertension: A potential approach to therapy that considers epigenetic change. (Volume 2) - Stenmark, Kurt R.|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 2.AbstractExperimental data indicate that the adventitial compartment of blood vessels, in both the pulmonary and systemic circulations, like the connective tissue stroma in tissues throughout the body, is a critical regulator of vessel wall function in health and disease. It is clear that adventitial cells, and in particular the adventitial fibroblast, are activated early following vascular injury, and play essential roles in regulating vascula...
|Altered expression of nuclear and cytoplasmic histone H1 in pulmonary artery and pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells in patients with IPAH. (Volume 2) - Talati, Megha|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 2.AbstractThe pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary hypertension is poorly understood. This paper utilized histology-based Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Mass Spectrometry (MALDI MS) to identify as-yet unknown proteins that may be associated with the structural changes in the pulmonary arterial walls of patients with IPAH. The technology identified significant increases in two fragments of histone H1 in the IPAH cases compared to con...
|Activity of Ca2+ -activated Cl- channels contributes to regulating receptor- and store-operated Ca2+ entry in human pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells. (Volume 1) - Yamamura, Aya|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 1.AbstractIntracellular Ca2+ plays a fundamental role in regulating cell functions in pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PASMCs). A rise in cytosolic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]cyt) triggers pulmonary vasoconstriction and stimulates PASMC proliferation. [Ca2+]cyt is increased mainly by Ca2+ release from intracellular stores and Ca2+ influx through plasmalemmal Ca2+-permeable channels...
|Expression of mutant BMPR-II in pulmonary endothelial cells promotes apoptosis and a release of factors that stimulate proliferation of pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells. (Volume 1) - Yang, Xudong|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 1.AbstractMutations in the bone morphogenetic protein type II receptor gene (BMPR-II) are the major cause of heritable pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Although both endothelial and smooth muscle cell BMPR-II dysfunction have been seen to contribute to pulmonary hypertension in vivo, little is known about the impact of BMPR-II mutation on the interaction between these two important cell types...

|Optimization of isolated perfused/ventilated mouse lung to study hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction. (Volume 3) - Yoo, Hae Young|
This article is from Pulmonary Circulation, volume 3.AbstractHypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is a compensatory physiological mechanism in the lung that optimizes the matching of ventilation to perfusion and thereby maximizes gas exchange. Historically, HPV has been primarily studied in isolated perfused/ventilated lungs; however, the results of these studies have varied greatly due to different experimental conditions and species...
